Electronic Parts

  • Transistors
    Transistors are the key to the digital revolution. Old-style vacuum tube circuits were so large and inefficient that they could never be practical for most computing needs. Without transistors, person....
  • Passive Electronic Components
    Most electronic components fall into two categories: Passive electronic components and active electronic components. To understand what passive electronic components are, it is first necessary to know....
  • Mil Spec Connectors
    Mil-spec connectors have been certified by the U.S. government for use in military applications. Not all mil-spec connectors find their way into military use, however, and they can be used in other ap....
  • Electromechanical Relays
    Electromechanical relays are electromechanical switches. They control the flow of electricity in a circuit. Devices would be unusable without this simple bit of technology. Imagine a blender you co....
  • Making PCBs
    When designing printed circuit boards (PCBs) for your own custom electronics devices, it is important to ensure that the spaces on the board can accommodate the various components for which they are m....
  • PCB Suppliers
    As design and manufacturing tools have advanced over the years, more and more suppliers of printed circuit boards (PCBs) have popped up in the marketplace. Computer-aided design (CAD) applications ha....
  • Obsolete Electronics Parts
    An increasingly viable and attractive alternative for companies looking to save money is to use obsolete electronic parts to repair or replace damaged systems instead of continually purchasing new and....
  • Obsolete Transistors
    When transistors were first invented at Bell Labs, they were bulky and inefficient by today’s standards. Though they were an incredible advance over the vacuum tube circuits in use at the time,....
  • Electronic Passive Components
    Electronic passive components are necessary in almost all electronic devices. Unlike active electronic components that require power to function, electronic passive components restrict and regulate po....
  • Mil Spec Parts
    Mil-spec parts are commonly sold by independent distributors of obsolete electronics. These distributors maintain extensive online databases of available products that consumers can browse at their ow....
